Overview

Lederhosen, accordions, and a dead body ai juat what coffee roaster Jennifer Penny found when she walked into her booth the second day of Hermann, Minnesota's Polka Daze Festival.
Jennifer, Megan Murphy, and Sister Bernadine, the only working nun in town, have been friends since second grade. When Sister Bernadine becomes the chief suspect , Jennifer gets in the bandwagon to find the real killer and prove the innocence of her unjustly suspected friend.

Moving away from the seriousness of social work, Diane worked for more than ten years managing a group of saleswomen, selling lingerie at home parties.Like many people, her dream was to someday write a novel. Currently she is semi-retired, works part-time at Kishwaukee College Library in Malta, IL and lives in Sycamore, IL. In 2007, Diane took a creative fiction writing course.

Too Dead To Dance was fantastic! It was such a fun read, I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fun summer book. The book follows Jennifer Penny, a vivacious middle-aged woman who is bound and determined to solve this murder mystery despite many warnings from the police and others to mind her own business! The book is a page-turner and will keep you guessing (and laughing) all the way to the end. Readers from Minnesota will enjoy the many references to Minnesota culture. Don't miss out on this book!!!!!

The heroine of this mystery trips over the body right at the beginning of the story--a dead guy wearing lederhosen. Now that's how I like to see bad guys meet their end. This independent gal, Jennifer Penny (don't call her "Jenny Penny") goes on to find the fellow's murderer, all while running her own coffee roasting business, dodging her despicable ex-husband, and brewing up a little romance herself with a local cop. If, like me, you love cozy mysteries, because you can get wrapped up in a juicy tale filled with clues, excitement, laughter, and romance--then "Too Dead to Dance" is a great choice for you. I was especially smitten with all the lore of state fairs and craft shows that the author, Diane Morlan (obviously drawn from years of experience) brings to this well-rounded tale of amateur sleuthery.
